Kim Kardashian is finally breaking her silence on her past controversial remarks about women in business.

During the reality star's appearance on Good Morning America on Monday March 28, she addressed the controversial comments made earlier this month in a Variety profile, where she told women in business to "get your f**king a** up and work."

"Well, that statement that I said was without questions and conversation around it," Kardashian told co-anchor Robin Roberts, per E! News, explaining it "became a sound bite really with no context."

"And that sound bite came off the notion and the question right before which was after 20 years of being in the business you're famous for being famous," the brunette babe continued, "And I…my whole tone and attitude changed with the previous question that went into that question about what advice would you give to women."

The 41-year-old pointed out overnight success won't come easy for people on reality TV or those who have a large social media following, as it took her and her family several years to built their empire.

"It wasn't a blanket statement towards women or to feel like I don't respect the work or think that they don't work hard," Kardashian added of TV personalities and social media influencers. "I know that they do. It was taken out of context, but I'm really sorry if it was received that way."

As OK! reported, Kardashian gave advice to women on making money during her appearance in Variety, in which she was joined by sisters Khloé Kardashian, Kourtney Kardashian and momager Kris Jenner.

"I have the best advice for women in business," the mother-of-four stated at the time to the publication. "Get your f**king a** up and work. It seems like nobody wants to work these days."

“You have to surround yourself with people that want to work. Have a good work environment where everyone loves what they do because you have one life," the KKW Beauty founder added at the time.

Kardashian's remarks didn’t land well with the public, as one critic tweeted: "Kim Kardashian telling women in business to get their a**es up and work the day after International Womens Day has to be the biggest joke of the year," as another added: "Kim Kardashian acting as if she has better work ethic than other women in this country is INSANE to me."

Kardashian also seemed to offend The View's Sunny Hostin with her privileged remarks, as she stated during the March 10th episode of her talk show: “I feel like people who are born on third base shouldn’t be talking about how easy it is to hit a home run."

Candidly noting that Kardashian has been given the upper hand throughout her life, the TV personality added: “It helps to be born rich also, like she was. She had a wealthy father. She had a mother who was a business manager. She’s pretty. It came off as being very privileged. It came off as being very elitist.”
